  1. Women with Endometriosis know its a life altering disease, sometimes even with medication, so for those women who would prefer natural treatment or aids, there are several natural vitamins, minerals and home remedies that will help your symptoms but please before you try any dietary changes consult your doctor.

    Endometriosis is a painful disease where tissue that would normally line the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — will grow outside of your uterus and spreads through out your abdominal cavity. Endometriosis usually spreads to your ovaries, bowel and the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely will the endometrial tissue spread beyond your pelvic region. The displaced endometrial tissue will continue to act as it normally does: It thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue has no outlet from your body, it becomes trapped. Surrounding tissue will become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions — abnormal tissue that binds organs together. Endometriosis is a painful disease which also causes Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS), heaving bleeding, nausea, bloating, and pending on the stage can cause infertility. There are many home remedies for endometriosis to help with these ailments.

    Here are some natural ways to treat Endometriosis:

    Vitamins

    Vitamin B’s – All vitamin B’s break down fat, carbohydrates and protein in the body. Folic acid is one of the most important vitamin B’s because it brings oxygen to the tissues and a lack of this vitamin can cause anemia.

    Vitamin C – Builds and preserves collagen in the body, promotes healing, fights disease and simulates the immune system.

    Vitamin E – Strengthens the immune system. When vitamin E is taken with selenium it can decrease inflammation caused by Endometriosis

    Minerals

    Calcium – Roughly two weeks before your period calcium levels lower in your body, this can cause headaches, muscle cramps and pelvic pain.

    Iron – During the menstrual cycle most women loose an average of 30 mg of iron, for women with Endometriosis this can decrease even more causing mental haziness, serious fatigue and weakness.

    Magnesium – Helps relieve muscle cramping.

    Zinc – Helps the reproduction of cells and is important for enzyme activity. Zinc can help women cope with emotions and reduce inability.

    Home Remedies

    Ginger Tea – In order to treat nausea, drink a cup of ginger tea. It can be prepared by boiling a piece of ginger in water with a spoon of tea leaves. Sieve the tea and you can add honey. Drink it hot.

    Heating Pad – Heat increases blood flow and helps regulate pain.

    Exercising – Exercising is a great because it will reduce the estrogen levels and slow down the growth of the endometriosis. It also releases endorphins which reduces irritability. Also avoid using tampons during your period because they block the outlet of normal blood flow and you will experience a lot of pain, more than you would normalcy experience.
